Them gays wanna be just like us

Politiczen8tao once wrote a story here about gay marriage.

And now, the Cancer-in-Chief has started making his reputation-recovery efforts.  Oh, first he made sure we nabbed Zarqawi, a guy we had cornered in 2003 and 2004, but didn't kill because we needed to rally more support for continued war in Iraq.  But also, he's pandering to his bigoted base.

So I thought I'd link to one of the best written, most erudite articles on the subject.

"

This is precisely the "tyranny of the majority" so many political philosophers warn against in any democratic or republican system, where a bigoted and intolerant majority may run ramshod over the rights of minorities. The United States Constitution was written specifically to avoid this scenario, and to ensure basic rights and liberties to all, regardless of what hateful opinions may hold popular sway.

The proposed Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage does much more than undermine the spirit and purpose of the Constitution, though; it presents a Constitutional crisis which throws our most basic concept of "rights" in limbo.

Why? Because the United States is a Common Law system."



In other words...practically speaking, you should oppose the "we hate fags" law, because you love America.  And because your views won't always be the majority views.

Just a reminder:

First They Came for the Jews

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

Hot, damn...MeFi's Schroedinger (is he alive?  is he dead?  what's he doing in that box?) nails it.  I mean, sure, he wasn't referring to this, in particular, but damn:


"The Pharisees were the group of Jews who argued over the letter of the law rather than the spirit, sticking it to whomever didn't follow this or that exact practice while making a lot of their own supposed holiness, praying openly and praising themselves and whatnot because they could recite obscure quotes and followed the most useless bits of the law. They were also monstrous hypocrites and tended to only follow those parts of the law that suited them--their focus on the nattering bits was to distract from their outright defiance of the major points of Jewish law, like justice and mercy and love for God. Jesus condemned them above all other groups--that was why he made such a big deal about associating with "undesirables" instead of the supposed "holy" Pharisees. He was pointing out that the love of God, "loving your neighbor as yourself", was more important than anything else.

Now, it's not like I'm looking at these supposed Christians and drawing parallels between the Pharisees who shunned and condemned the undesirables of society--the prostitutes, the lepers, the criminals, the poor--while holding up massive copies of the holy texts and screaming about how holy they are . . . wait, never mind, I am.

Go read the *censored* New Testament and stick your Pharisaic sermons in your *censored* where they belong."
